The untold story of publishing sensation Jackie Collins is told in a new documentary – more details and a trailer here.

The story of best-selling author Jackie Collins is heading to UK cinemas, courtesy of a brand new documentary movie.

Lady Boss: The Jackie Collins Story is a feature-length documentary movie that Modern Films is releasing this very weekend. Coming from the producers of films such as Searching For Sugarman and One Day In September, it tells the story of Collins, and her push to build a one-woman publishing empire.

As the official synopsis reads, “Narrated by a cast of Jackie’s closest friends and family, the film reveals the private struggles of a woman who became an icon of 1980s feminism whilst hiding her personal vulnerability behind a carefully crafted, powerful, public persona. A fabulous, hilarious and deeply moving feminist fairy-tale”.

Laura Fairrie directs the film, and today – July 1st – there are Q&A screenings being beamed to cinemas around the country. Mariella Frostrup hosts, with members of the Collins family in attendance too.

You can find cinema listing details, and also how to watch the film via ‘virtual’ cinema here.

We’ll leave you with the trailer…
